Enterprise, AL – Enterprise State Community College’s annual Founders Day is set from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, in the ESCC track area. This year’s events include relay races, dodge ball, karaoke, tug-of-war, sack races, and more organized by the college’s Founders Day Committee and Student Services.
Founders Day is an annual opportunity for students, faculty and staff to celebrate the college’s founding in 1963. The college first observed Founders Day in the early 1970s, according to Dr. Kevin Ammons, ESCC’s Associate Dean of Students/Athletic Director. At that time, the celebration happened between the last day of classes and finals in order for students to enjoy time with their instructors and ask any questions before the end of the semester. Founders Day later moved to the fall semester but returned to the spring semester in recent years.
